This year’s MSA meeting was held in June at the Kellogg Center at Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI. This was a stand-alone MSA meeting, and these are always the most fun. The meeting was followed by an NSF-supported workshop on sequence-based classification of fungi (more on that later). Photos from the workshop below:
Our lab had eight presentations at MSA:
- Gazis, Romina; Kuo, Alan; Floudas, Dimitrios; Grigoriev, Igor; Spatafora, Joey; Hibbett, David. Xylona heveae (Xylonomycetes) genome: a window to fungal endophytism
- Nagy, Laszlo; Hibbett, David. Convergent regulatory evolution underlies the repeated appearance of yeast-like fungi
- Knudson, Alicia; Hibbett, David. Fruiting body shape in Gomphales and clarification of Ramaria
- Nagy, Laszlo; Hibbett, David. Insights into the evolutionary origins of the white-rot decay apparatus in Basidiomycetes
- Gazis, Romina; Rees, Jonathan; Ree, Rick; Smith, Stephen; Hibbett, David. Lost in translation: challenges of transferring information from phylogenies into taxonomy
- Seelan, Jaya Seelan Sathiya; Justo, Alfredo; Nagy, Laszlo; Hibbett, David; Hughes, Karen. Phylogenetic relationships and morphological evolution in Lentinus, Polyporellus and Neofavolus, emphasizing Southeast Asian taxa
- Justo, Alfredo; Hibbett, David. The genus Pluteus (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) in North America, how close are we to a continental Mycoflora?
- Hibbett, D. S. Challenges and opportunities in sequence-based identification and classification of fungi. Symposium: Sequence-based Identification of Fungi.
